Human rights campaigner Nadia Murad was born and raised in Kocho, Iraq, a Yazidi village that was attacked by Isis in 2014. Like many other women and children of the Yazidi religious minority, Nadia was enslaved and tortured by Isis militants, and lost 18 members of her family.

Her courageous book, The Last Girl, tells her story from a peaceful childhood in rural Iraq, to the Isis-led genocide and destruction of her community, to her escape to Germany.

Murad is the founder of a programme dedicated to helping survivors of genocide and human trafficking, and together with Yazda is currently working to bring the Islamic State before the International Criminal Court. She was awarded the Václav Havel human rights prize and is the UN's first goodwill ambassador for the dignity of survivors of human trafficking.

She will be in conversation with the Guardian and the Observer international affairs correspondent Emma Graham-Harrison.
